Testimonials
​​"Subway II gave me the opportunity and encouragement to embrace my individuality.  It helped me find the courage and the tenacity that it takes to swim against the current."

"I find the one-on-one sessions to be rather revolutionary in contrast to other schools I have attended. I cherish the freedom."

"Subway Academy II was virtually a lifesaver for our family. Students are guided towards independence in a unique environment that is demanding yet still flexible, equitable and accommodating and free of boundaries."
